The National Republican Senatorial Committee is backing Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., despite candidate Danny Tarkanian's announcement he will make a primary challenge to the incumbent, The Hill reported.

"Time and again, Sen. Dean Heller has proven he is unafraid to put Nevadans first," Michael McAdams, a spokesman for the NRSC said on Tuesday. "The NRSC fully supports Sen. Heller in his primary and general elections, and we are confident he will be re-elected.

Tarkanian, the son of legendary Nevada college basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian, announced his candidacy on Tuesday. Politico noted Heller is considered the most vulnerable Republican senator in the nation for 2018.
